The use of physiotherapy for our pets is increasing, and every day, more and more people are seeing the benefits.

Accidents happen, and our four-legged friends end up in a sticky situation. They can also develop of orthopaedic and neurological conditions that can present themselves at any stage in their life. All of these conditions can cause pain and discomfort, which affects your pet’s mobility and quality of life. 

We all want to see our pets happy and pain free, and whether your dog has just had surgery, suffered an injury, been diagnosed with a condition that needs managing, or you would just like to improve and maintain their overall health and fitness, REC Veterinary Physiotherapy is here to help!

What conditions can physiotherapy treat in canines?

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in a range of canine conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Cruciate Ligament Disease
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
  • Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
  • Muscle strains and pulls
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Fracture Repair
  • Patella Luxation
  • Spondylosis
  • Osteochondrosis Dissecans
  • Tendonitis/Tenosynovitis
  • Lumbosacral Disease
  • Fibrocartilaginous Embolism
  • Injury Prevention

It can sometimes be hard to tell whether our pets are in discomfort, and with life-long conditions such as hip dysplasia and arthritis, our dogs can keep going as if nothing is wrong. Owners often bring their dog for physiotherapy after noticing some of the following behaviours:

  • Reluctance to walk
  • Reluctance to go up and down stairs, or jump on to the sofa or in and out of cars
  • Slowing down or sniffing more on their walks
  • Uncharacteristic changes in their behaviour, such as being more grumpy, fearful of objects or noises, or depressed/low mood
  • Unwillingness to be touched or groomed
  • Difficulty getting up or down
  • Difficulty getting comfortable
  • Sleeping more than usual
  • Excessive licking at their joints
